Re: Advice on retouching badly damaged photo?

Thanks guys for your help - I am also going to try making a digital photograph of the image with a diffuse light source as set out in Katrins book to see if I can get rid of some of that terrible reflection.

Re: Advice on retouching badly damaged photo?

alison, you talking about on the left side of the image or the right? i think the right is like oh heck says, it's a noise/damage thing. it could probably just be blacked out and be fine or maybe dub some dark shrubbery in there.

Hi Kraellin,

I see it on both sides of man. You are probably correct that it is damage to the original photo.

What size brush do you use for painting the background. I am using around 200 pixel size. Do you use any particular brush stroke (full length / up down etc). The Healing Brush does a fair job of getting rid of the dimpled background however gets a little tricky near the line of the grass, and the outline of gerald.

Hi Jaso,

Sorry its taken me a while to get back to you. I probably used a 100 pixel brush on the background, if you have the original larger image you could go bigger. I didn't use any particular brushstroke on the image, but I would probably go in an up and down stroke to match the wood. You will have to use the clone brush along the grass line and around Gerald.

- curves
- channel mixer 40/40/20
- hue/saturation
- sharpening
- cloning & healing
- "over done" the noise reduction, and then added some noise
- gradient tool on top, left and right to add more focus
- added touch of color to warm up the photo.
